Face Rabbit (Dyommo) Mask


The area identified as Dogon country spans roughly 19,300 square miles of southeast Mali, with a population of approximately 400,000. The history of Dogon masquerade has been one of constant adaptation. Mask performances were described in connection with post-burial rites for important elders, rites for the protection of fruit crops, and at corrective rites, referred to aspuro, curbing the behavior of women. This mask type represents a rabbit (dyommo), and its wearer danced to rhythms known by the same name.
